Peonies are at their peak!

I was born in Minneapolis and Peonies were a hugely popular flower as a child. I remember our home in Long Lake,  one side of the long driveway that led to the garage was lined with  peonies.
Fortunately, my home in Denver has four beautiful peony bushes.  This particular variety, a full double-pink bloom, has a delicate yellow center to it.
Peonies have been called the "Queen of the Garden Flowers."  I certainly can see why.  The bush with the white peonies have a gorgeous deep pink center.
I just picked a huge bouquet for the house.  Once the temperatures start to soar, the blooms start to fade.  Boy, they make the house smell great.  Happy gardening!
